ODYSSEY O-WORKS 2-BALL
www.odysseygolf.com Headweight: 350g
Grip: SuperStroke Pistol GT Tour or SuperStroke Slim 2.0 (Counter Core)
Toe hang: Face Balanced
TECH: A timeless, bestselling head design, but new finger-shaped grips on the stainless steel face plate are combined with a thermoplastic elastomer feel layer to interact with the ball at impact.
WE SAY: It’s amazing the 2-Ball is still so popular; it’s been around for years. As much as our testers loved the feel and roll delivered by the microhinge insert, the 2-Ball’s overall body design came in for some questioning. There’s no getting away from how round the head’s edges are. Combine all those curves with two huge, ball-sized alignment aids on the top and that’s a lot of circles to aim squarely, particularly if you like working in straight lines. Having said that, the 2-Ball shows the path away from the ball brilliantly, and now the feedback and roll are unquestionably better than any 2-Ball putter before.
VERDICT: The new insert makes this iconic design better than ever before.
For us, a straight red line across the centre of the discs on the top would raise this design up to a whole new level.
